Look at all the top college players in recent years who carried their teams to the title: Kareem Abdul-Jabbar ( UCLA), Magic Johnson ( Michigan State), Darrell Griffith ( Louisville). James Worthy ( North Carolina), David Thompson ( NC State), Bill Walton ( UCLA) and, almost, Larry Bird ( Indiana State), to name a few. Virginia hasn't even won an ACC Tournament championship in the "Ralph Era." Before you put Sampson in a class with these other stars, his on-the-court results should be more impressive.'
No wonder Sampson and Ewing are so good! As your opening photograph clearly showed, between the two of them they have six legs and six arms. Curry Kirkpatrick made no mention of this anatomical bonus in his otherwise informative article.
